Secrets of Jo Daviess County
- and Beyond
July 11-13, 2008
The third annual Secrets of Jo Daviess County Tour has been scheduled for the weekend of July 11-13, 2008. This year the name has an addendum. It will be Jo Daviess County - and Beyond. We’re going outside the county into southwest Wisconsin and Northeast Iowa to seek new hills and curves and views.
The MG enjoyable weekend will begin with an afternoon reception at the Lake Carroll home of the Herman’s for those who wish to travel to the area on Friday. After the reception we’ll dine at the Yellow Creek Inn with the famous fish fry so popular last year. The host hotel for that night will again be the Country Inn and Suites at Stockton.
The Saturday launch will be from the Country Inn parking lot at 10 am. Our route will take us to a short winery stop then through some new venues in Jo-Daviess County before crossing into Wisconsin. We’ll use a ferryboat to cross the Mississippi River into Iowa. We’ll work our way along the river to a famous overlook of the juncture of the Mississippi and Wisconsin rivers and end the day at Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin. Dinner, lodging and parking lot party in Prairie du Chien.
Sunday we’ll run cross-country in southwest Wisconsin with a destination of the ever-popular Baumgartner’s cheese store in Monroe. The tour breaks here and you will be free to choose your way home.
If you plan to join us please send me an e-mail of your intentions, including whether you will attend the reception, to email@example.com. I’ll then put you on my distribution list and keep you posted of information and developments regarding the tour.
We hope to see you then for some genuine MG driving enjoyment.
